There are many good reasons to walk to work. Great exercise. Saves on parking. Good for the environment.
All of them very sound reasons. I can cover the distance from home and the office in almost exactly one hour which is a comfortable, sensible length for a walk on a school day. But there is one very big flaw in the plan when you actually have to front a room mid morning and look professional. This morning was stinking hot and stupid humid so I arrived at the office looking somewhat less fresh than a daisy and smelling like a gym change room. Nice (not). So that's the negative. The positive was this somewhat bizarre road sign in the mud flat under the south-east freeway. As you can see there is no road ahead. Clearly that's the Brisbane River.
